Adaptable NMEA 0183 Buffer with two OPTO-isolated inputs and twelve ISO-Drive™
isolated outputs, making ground loops a thing of the past and keeping devices
safe from damage.
PRO-BUF-1 is reliable, robust and provides isolation on all inputs and outputs
as standard. With two NMEA 0183 inputs, twelve NMEA 0183 outputs, a
bi-directional serial port and an Ethernet port, the PROBUF- 1 is a perfect
solution for larger leisure vessels and commercial shipping.
The PRO-BUF-1 is designed to suit the majority of NMEA 0183 systems and ready to
go ‘out of the box’ by simply hard-wiring the two mode inputs as required. The
manually configurable basic modes of operation include variations of buffer
modes, autoswitch modes, and combine modes. For all other configurations,
leaving the mode inputs floating selects the ‘User Configuration Mode’. The web
browser based configuration tool allows full customization of the PRO-BUF-1, and
is compatible across all popular Operating Systems.
The PRO-BUF-1 supports a direct Ethernet connection to a PC without the need for
a specialized Ethernet crossover cable.
To make installation quick and simple the PRO-BUF-1 features 2-part pluggable
connectors that allow use of screw or screwless terminals, and a professional
DIN rail mounting mechanism (DIN rail included). Helpful LEDs indicate power,
data in, data out and the alarm status to aid diagnostics.
